Bahamian-Bermuda Association meets Burt
Premier the Hon. David Burt, JP, MP, met yesterday with the Bahamian-Bermuda Association coordinating committee, for the Northern Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.
This committee has established a Registered Charity (designated account) to facilitate their fundraising initiative and met with the Premier to discuss plans to further assist this humanitarian effort. They have received an overwhelmingly compassionate interest from the Bermudian community.
Premier Burt said, “Our heartfelt prayers continue to go out to the Bahamas as they come to grips with the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. We will work with the Bahamian Association of Bermuda to offer support and ensure our collaborative relief efforts.”
Residents can assist the people of the Bahamas by providing cleaning supplies, building supplies, safety and hygiene supplies, and non-perishable food items. For more information and to offer assistance contact the Bahamian Association of Bermuda at 297-2326.
